“Election campaign without agriculture transition”

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Ecologic criticism of the German agriculture industry plays no role in the campaign for the upcoming general elections, contrary to previous years, writes Jan Grossarth in an opinion piece for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Priorities now lay with topics like migration, terrorism and international security.  And while the green movement had achieved “clean rivers, better air quality and climate agreements” over the past decades, the agricultural transition was still far away, writes Grossarth.
